Forum: prelinger Subject: Something missing from The Story Of television ?

The review of "The Story Of Television" says the last third of the film is in (bad) color. Yet the version I downloaded, at exactly the posted 14:50, cuts off rigth at the word "color", where you would expect it to switch.

Is there a Part 2 missing, or did the file get truncated, or is the review just wrong ?

The divx of this was one of the first films I downloaded from the Prelinger Archive back in 2001, and it appears to be cut-off at the end of a film reel. So are the mpeg4 and mpeg2 versions. So I'll ask too, where's the rest?

Yes, indeed, the color sequence is missing. Back in the day I didn't have a complete print. Well, I do now, and it's been telecined, so it's going to go to Skip for digitizing as part of the next group of films. It's nice color, btw, something to look forward to.

Very good to hear! Love the color on those RCA films from the fifties and sixties. Will it be getting the full D1 treatment Skip mentioned in an earlier thread?

I'm assuming that you're referring to my review. When I initially discovered this site, I posted reviews for all the Prelinger films I already had in another form. The version of The Story of Television I reviewed is actually a VHS version from Video Yesteryear, not the one that is on this site. I was not aware that the one on this site had footage missing. Hope this clears up your confusion.
